Penzance Park Clean Up - Tuesday Oct 17


Nevada City Wide Clean-Up Day ~ Rotarians at Work  Tuesday October 17
Penzance Park 8:30am - 1:00pm (or til done if earlier)

As Cathy announced at Thursday's meeting, our Club is taking on clean up of Penzance Park as part of Nevada City Wide Clean-Up Day. The City asked if we would take on this site for the day.  A number of years ago we did a clean up blitz at Penzance Park so some of you are familiar with the site.  The park is at the corner of Sacramento Street and Prospect St across from the Chevron Station at Sacramento and Railroad. 

Walt checked out the site for us and requests we be prepared for weed whacking and raking.  Not much trash but lots of pine needles, blackberries and weeds.  Bring gloves, loppers, weed whackers and the like. 

We hope to see you on Tuesday, October 17th for a fun work day together!

More about Nevada City Wide Clean-Up Day

NCDIG (Nevada City Determined Improvement Group) has planned a day for our community to come together and volunteer some time to keep Nevada City looking beautiful. There are painting projects, graffiti removal, cleaning projects, leaf blowing and other projects to spruce up downtown and Pioneer Park.

We hope to see you on Tuesday, October 17th.

World Wide Polio Day

October 24 is World Polio Day. Plan to join us Tuesday morning October 24 on a Walk For Polio from Nevada City to Grass Valley.  Details to follow. We will keep Cathy's GivingTrail Make History Today End Polio Once and For All campaign live until October 24.  The clock is running down ~ if you want to make a donation do so now!  Many, many thanks.
